Rebel 500 engine guard/frame sliders. Which is the most discrete one?

Hi,



I rode last summer 2000km without having any frame sliders , but i'm thinking of installing some for this season. Now, i don't intend to drop the bike, but they're good to have. I don't know, i have a strange feeling, last summer I've ridden in shorts and a tshirt, this season i got me real jackets and pants with protection and boots&gloves.

The main reason i didn't added one last year is because some of them are huge. Like metal bars around there in front.

Now that you guys have seen many of them or even installed on yours, in your opinion, which one is the most discrete one while still keeping in style with the motorcycle? Either engine guard frames or those frame sliders pins.



Are these any good? Anybody bought this model? Price varies from 60 to 100 on ebay.
Thank you!

Frame Slider Pin's ( long steel rod's with caps ) would be great,but I haven't seen any after-market, same for on the front and rear axle,

I don't care about the engine, I just hate to have my leg/ankle crushed when the bike goes down.

I agree these HUGE monkey cages look terrible, and they're not strong, they're just light pipes that wrap the engine, not sure what they would accomplish? They're cheap at $100

I would prefer to find a rock solid ( +1" round ) steel tube that sticks out both sides as wide as the lower foot peg, usually they pass though the lower motor-mount, and for the front they kit just replaces the front axle. The rear you get a lift-kit for fast-jack that includes the sliders,

Why nobody is selling this KIT for the Rebel boggles my mind, I guess it can only be that the MARKET is near zero for sales potential,

Probably going to have to make my own, or get another set for a similar bike and rethread/weld and ot what it takes, but I see no point of the MONKEY-CAGE around the engine.

Rebel 500 engine Guard from Zeed Parts

I bought my engine guard from Zeed Parts in Thailand, nice fit and not to bulky. Also have the Zeed chub bars.

I came across these:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HONDA-REB...edirect=mobile

I thought I read somwwhere on here that the bolts are a little short. It is the sort of protection I want though. I asked Evotech about this and they said they were assessing the bike at last October's Eicma show. No word yet on that.

Just do it! (I did: 2017 Rebel 500; 2014 MT-07)

What i've seen so far.

Two slim around the radiator models
1. Hepco and Becker - 145$ .. Or this one from another seller
2. |The CF103 - about same prince
Both these two are similar in size and price, mostly same look, they are very close to the bike. As @rebel401 said above, these are starting to make me think of how sturdy they really are or what they protect. Plus, there is no ankle protection, true that, seem to be fitten to the aluminum screws on the frame.

The Zeed look, a top bottom bar behind the radiator
1. This GIVI at 86
2. The similarly looking ZEED one above in @Isaan's post.

These models are bigger, appear sturdier as they are mounted to that pipe behind the radiator, go more on the outside which may mean some ankle protection...maybe.

The Frame Sliders
1. RZM at 60
2. Moritech at 100
These things should be both in front and on the back? They look to be suited better for sports bikes.

Now i don't know what to get

For who bought from Zeed, what's the difference between these two from Zeed parts.

One is listed at 3900
The other one is listed at 3000
Seems to be the same from photes

The more expensive set is an H2C from Honda, the other is local made

I see now, thanks. I guess the thai local one is as good as the branded one.



I really like the idea for the back, "The rear you get a lift-kit for fast-jack that includes the sliders,".

I assume these ones would connect to be big screw at the back wheel. Looked a bit on ebay for these for other bikes, I would assume is all about the size of that screw/nut, but couldn't find.

For who doesnt have the stock exhaust, this is a great ideea i believe.
